Our garden seedlings have been making lots of progress…except for the carrots (top left container). But, the seed packet does say that carrots do take longer to germinate, so I just need some patience I guess! The kids and I planted these on May 1st and noticed the first little leaves poking through the soil on May 8th (only 1 week!). This is so exciting!!
As luck would have it, my dining room window faces south – so now that’s our officially “baby plant zone”. The big kids squeal with delight every morning as they check up on our new little lives’ that we are nurturing.
Wheat Grass (front), Lettuce (behind) & Tomatoes (left) -
Sweet Corn (near) & Green Beans reaching for the sun (far) -
Zucchini and Summer Squash -
Now that Mother’s Day has come and gone, our chance for frost is pretty minimal…so this week I need to get busy actually building the garden for these little guys!

What about you…do you start your seedlings indoors, or outdoors? Or, do you just go and buy the plants that the garden center has started already? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated…afterall, this is my first vegetable garden!
